artist : 昇齋一景 Shōsai Ikkei, active ca 1870
Title of series : 画解五十余箇條 Gakai gojū amari kajō
The top print seems to be about people demolishing a shack, rather than fighting a fire.
The Master‘s Thesis of Kiyoko Andrea Metzler (in German) gives a description of the series:
Ikkei meticulously documented people's lives in the series and created a realistic depiction of the mood at that time in the streets of the early Meiji period. In a simplified way, he conveyed to everyone what was allowed and what was not, what was appropriate and what would be punished.
